Dust Bunnies Happen

ASU - ChoresCover

Who would have thought the dreaded dust bunny would find its way into Second Life?  Quite a few peeps actually if you consider the amount of feather dusters and vacuum cleaners in the marketplace!

So for all of our readers needing to clean, but not wanting to do it in French maid attire, we’ve put together a casual yet stylish alternative.

ASU - Choresfrontback

COCO Designs’ put out a new gift, the high waist dark grey jeans.  These jeans are terrific.  They are sized for Slink, Maytreya, and Belleza bodies.  However, there is nothing to stop classic avatars from enjoying them too.  More likely than not, you already have several pant alphas in your inventory.  One of them is bound to work.

While at COCO Designs take a few moments to peruse their gift wall.  There are several nice casual tops to chose from to complete the outfit.  Our model chose the the cropped tee.  There’s just something about seeing a bright hello in a strategic spot that makes a person smile.

ASU - Choreshair

This slightly disheveled ponytail and headband hairstyle is perfect for an afternoon of light housecleaning.  You can find it at Opale Hair along with yesterdays featured style.  Both are currently available as group gifts, and yes joining is free!

…we’re stealing your signature color!

Belle Epoque’s current group gift is simply too vibrant to pass by.  The Giselle dress is fitmesh requiring a bit of tweaking using your mesh body’s own alpha system.  If  you have a detailed alpha HUD, then this dress is a keeper.

The combination of a wrap top and long pencil skirt is sexy in its simplicity.  Great job Belle Epoque.

Weekend Retreat

ASU - WeekendGetawayCOVER

Happy Saturday!

Team All Spiffed Up thought you might like to kick off your weekend with a little exercise in a lovely setting.  Of course, you’ll need the proper attire, so let’s get dressed.

The t-shirt and running shorts are the August group gift at Vive Nine.  Unlike so many group gifts that have obvious signs in the store, this gift can only be found in Vive Nine’s group notices.  So, join the group (it’s free), click the notices tab in the group, click on the August Group Gift 2018 notice, and open the attachment.  Voila, the Tami outfit is yours.

Tami is sized for mesh bodies, and has 4 color choices for the running shorts.

Here’s a closer look at yet another great hair we snatched off of Olive’s luckyboard wall. The Stephanie Hair Naturals comes sized for regular and bewbies with standard and streak option HUDS.  It’s not easy finding platinum blondes with depth.  Great job Olive on a wonderfully shaded hair!

Eyes up people, we’ve got makeup to discuss.  Our model Carla combines a classic head with a mesh body.  All three of today’s makeups can be found in the marketplace, are tattoo layers, and as an added bonus two of them come with mesh appliers.  Of course to make it into this post they are also free.

ASU - WeekendGetawaymani

This manicure applier set is a gift from Mani Pedi for The Free Dove.

Carla had trouble finding a pair of free sneakers for her outfit, so Team ASU put together an August 2018 sneaker and sock gift for all of our readers.  Simply pop over to the All Spiffed Up headquarters at 7th Heaven to get your gift.  The set is unrigged for easy positioning, includes an alpha for classic avatars, and has resize menus.  Enjoy!

Iona scripted many of the larger soap bubbles with poses making the build a great place to take selfies.  Don’t forget to experiment with your environment settings when looking for that perfect picture.  The Crystal Forest has a completely different feel when viewed at midnight.
